    Yes.
    Refresh may be needed.
    Glad you have so little stuff to lose in the refresh.
    So just a refresh then? or do the windows 8 reset? I think they are along the same lines but the reset seems more in depth with cleaning out the system and starting new.

    I would try refresh first & reset as a last resort.

    Do what you feel comfortable doing.

    When I was repairing my Windows 8 install, which I only start up to do updates, the text file was 54 MB in size. There were bad files from all over. I did check the time stamp on the log entries and it appears to be just one SFC run, not multiple runs as you might have in that text file.

    The DSIM did repair them all in one run and did require a reboot prior to running SFC again. During the restart I saw the same indications you might see during restarts for Updates with the Percentage showing during the shutdown. I was, of course, online during the DISM process so it could access the Windows Server.

    In the Event Viewer I did notice I was getting Filter Manager errors. May not be relevant, but info just in case.

    Filter Manager failed to attach to volume '\Device\HarddiskVolume20'. This volume will be unavailable for filtering until a reboot. The final status was 0xC03A001C.
    Again, if it is relevant, this system is (was) using the small SSD as a cache for the HDD. (Smart Response)

    I think I've managed to repair all of my corrupt files without having to do a refresh/reset, I ran the Dism again - rebooted again - then did another sfc scan and it came up with no problems that time. So hopefully everything was fixed, still noticing a slight delay when right clicking on things but not getting the (not responding) message anymore so that's a good sign.

    Seems like running the Dism / sfc scan now multiple times managed to fix everything..least for the moment!

    It would be a good time to create a restore point.

    Good luck~~~ David
